of the ups and downs they have gone through to get to where they are. You admire to be like your role model, I do too. That role model has a story to tell and if you want to be like them then be ready to pay the price.
The desert is not meant to break you. It is meant to make you to be a better person, bold and strong- willed to handle what the future has for you. The Israelites for example when they were leaving Egypt, the Lord took them through a desert. Some deserts you are going through in life are not demonic, they are designed by God. Forty in years in the desert did they stay but God kept them Exodus 13:17 all through chapter 14 and 15. Keep your eyes focused on where you are going.
Another good example is Joseph in the Bible, the dreamer, son of Jacob. In his dreams he saw his family members bowing before him. They hated him for this and they decided to sell him to slavery. Life was not easy for Joseph in Egypt, he was put in prison for a crime he did not commit. This doesn’t look like destiny. I thought so too but see God was not through with him yet. After he endured his desert, Joseph became a prime minister in a foreign land. Genesis 41:41
Here comes David also, son of Jesse anointed in his young age to be the next king after Saul. Young as he was, the father could send him to the fields to fight the lions and bares. God was preparing him to fight Goliath, a ticket to his greatness. The Jelousy of Saul led David to sleeping in caves and always on the run. It doesn’t look like God was involved but he was. He endured the desert until the time came. Esther’s and Ruth’s life’s journey had different deserts too.
You are not an exception. Your desert might be different from mine, because we have different destinies. Don’t lose hope. Hope differed makes the heart sick. Be strong and courageous like Joshua and God will give you success. Let your dreams be alive. Trust in the Lord God Almighty always. You shall make it. The few examples have given shows how they made it through. You can also. Just know, after the desert there is Canaan. That is destiny.
